Explaining Consequences and Questioning Evidence
Maryland DUI law are tough and complex, and changes by the General Assembly enacted in late 2009 made it even more complex. Before you plead guilty or seek a license modification from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, or make other decisions about your DUI defense, it is important to talk to a lawyer who will:
- Explain penalties you face for conviction on your specific “A” or “B” offense, including fines and costs, loss of your driver’s license and mandatory treatment or coursework
- Thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your arrest to determine whether mistakes or injustices present a basis for excluding evidence or entering a not-guilty plea
- Negotiate assertively for an outcome you can live with if the case against you is strong and conviction appears unavoidable
